Homemade Crunch Wrap Supreme!

I found this recipe on another blog and decided to try it! There's nothing healthy about it but we eat tacos at least once a week so this is a good alternative! I never eat Taco Bell, but I did in college (didn't we all?) and their Crunch Wrap Supremes are to die for. SO yummy! I don't like to think about what is in Taco Bell's food, but with this homemade version, I know exactly whats in it! :)

Homemade Crunchwrap Supreme

6 large flour tortillas
6 small corn tortillas (or tortilla chips)
1 pound ground beef
1 package taco seasoning
sour cream
nacho cheese (or shredded Mexican blend cheese)
shredded lettuce
diced tomatoes

Brown ground beef in a skillet, then add taco seasoning (according to package directions). Set aside.

Bake the corn tortillas in the oven at 400 degrees for a couple of minutes, until they are golden and crunchy.

Microwave the flour tortillas, one at a time (because they cool off quickly), for about 10 seconds to warm them up; this will make wrapping easier. You could also warm them up in the oven; just wrap them in aluminum foil and heat them up for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees.

Lay out the flour tortilla. Spoon some of the seasoned beef into the center of the tortilla. Top with some nacho cheese, or shredded cheese. Place the crunchy corn tortilla on top of the cheese/beef; spread a dollop of sour cream on top of it, then toss on some diced tomatoes and shredded lettuce.

Starting with the bottom of the tortilla, fold the edge up to the center. Continue doing this in a clockwise or counter-clockwise movement until all of the tortilla is folded over, and the filling is entirely enclosed. If your filling isn't entirely enclosed and you have an open spot, simply cut out a circle from another flour tortilla and place it on the exposed area, then wrap the tortilla again. 

Spray a frying pan with cooking spray.  Carefully place the Crunchwrap, seam-side down, in the pan. Press with a spatula and cook on medium-low heat, for about 3 minutes, until the bottom is nice and brown. Flip it over and cook for another 3 minutes. Serve and enjoy :D

* I used Mexican Blend Shredded Cheese instead of Nacho Cheese & we didn't have any shredded lettuce so I left that out. I bet it would be super good with shredded lettuce! Ty also suggested that some mild sauce in there somewhere would be good on it so I might try that for him next time I make them. 

These were a big hit for Ty & I! Hope you enjoy :)


What is everyone making for the 4th? My Uncle has a huge get together at his house & everyone brings something so I am making Potato Salad and these yummy looking festive cookies:

I am sure you have seen this on pinterest if you have one! I will try to post the recipes for both (potato salad & cookies) tomorrow or Thursday! I hope everyone has a safe & fun 4th of July! Remember what the day is all about. :)
